Finally Broke Into The 1800's Club!

Recommended Posts

Congratulations!  I would have done the same.  Always follow the signs, of the old inhabitants,  that lay upon the ground.

It's always a thrill to find a coin from the 1800's. Congratulations.

Good advice from the others here.

Old bottle caps and other personal trash are a good sign to me. It means folks rested or ate in the area. The hillside you detected may have been an area where people took a break between trains.

Another technique that works for me when working around an old building is to think, "where would people have parked their buggies/cars?" Once I start hitting the old trashy stuff, I know I'm in a potentially good area.
